  • From our very first call, I KNEW Danieka was the photographer for us. She was flexible -- and in an age of COVID and crazy planning, I can't stress ENOUGH how important flexibility and empathy has been -- and really focused on what WE wanted. She has this incredible thread of creativity, sending me sample photos and inspirations of shots that were unique and not like the standard "cheesy wedding pose photos" you see all over Pinterest. Unlike other photographers we talked to, Danieka was more concerned about our style, our goals and what we wanted...so that she could bring ideas that would make every moment OURS. While others just sent us previous portfolios...Danieka was sending us examples of sets and set ups from editorial spreads along with examples of other amazing moments she had created with other couples. I am a bit of an organizer, and poor Danieka got spreadsheet upon spreadsheet of photos, requests and detail. She was just lovely...all smiles and laughter as I just kept c... Read more

  • COVID-19 had us changing and updating our wedding plans almost up until the day of! Throughout all of it, Danieka was professional, flexible, thoughtful, and responsive. While we were unsure of many details, we were never unsure of our decision to work with her! We were delighted to go through the pictures and see the thought that went into capturing the big moments and little details of our day. We were nervous about being in front of a camera, but Danieka did an excellent job of making us feel comfortable and most importantly, like ourselves. Don't hesitate to work with such a sweet and professional photographer!

  • Danieka has a great eye for candid moments. She won't tell you how to stand or which way to look, but she will capture the emotion of the event. In addition to taking wonderful photos, she is a kind and accommodating person. She drove about an hour away to a place she'd never been for our engagement shoot, even going before to scout out some good spots. She listens to requests very well, and got all our "must have" photos for the wedding, along with a bunch of really great guest photos from the reception!

  • With an intimate family wedding of twelve people, we knew that whoever we hired as a photographer would need to be someone who would honor and weave themselves into the celebration. Danieka was even more than we could have ever dreamed. Not only did she mesh so well with our families, but she also was a stealthy magician blending in without anyone noticing. Her lifestyle art of capturing our day was exactly what we had in mind; she truly captured the spirit, love and celebration. Danieka’s appreciation and acknowledgement of the often over looked details are just one of the many unique skills she possesses. We highly recommend Danieka for her high quality professionalism, artistry and joyful spirit.

  • My partner and I feel so very lucky to have found the Picturist to document our wedding. We interviewed quite a few photographers and honestly we didn't feel like we found a match until we met Danieka. There were folks that were supposedly well know and sought after but we didn't get a genuine or caring vibe from them. Danieka was responsive, thoughtful and just plain enjoyable to connect with from the beginning. Her photos are honest, full of emotion and truly capture the moment. Her system is well organized and she walked us through everything. Her rates are reasonable and affordable in a field where that isn't always the case. The photos we now have are so much more than we could have hoped for. She truly captured our love! The pictures are full of our warmth, laughter and even quirkiness. Plus the pictures are stunning - who knew we could look like that. I would say her photos are poetic! Danieka and her assistant made us feel comfortable and had real skill at being th... Read more

  • We could not be happier with our experience with Danieka of Picturist for our June 2019 wedding in Mill Valley!! From our first interaction with Danieka through receiving our full set of wedding pics after our big day, each interaction was prompt, professional and left us feeling confident with our decision to choose Picturist, and grateful to work with such a skilled and kind wedding photographer. Most importantly, our wedding photos are STUNNING. And so are our engagement pictures! When we were shopping for wedding photographers, Danieka’s beautiful portfolio caught our eye. We reached out and she sent us details of the photo packages she offered, and thankfully, some fell within our budget. I was grateful that we didn’t need to beg for pricing like we did with some of the other photographers. As we searched further, wanting to be sure that we were choosing the absolute best photographer we could afford, I found that we were comparing each other photographer’s portfolio with... Read more

  • Danieka was phenomenal. She went above and beyond, showed up bright and early, was creative and resourceful, knew exactly when I was ready to take photos and took subtle cues to when I was over it. The venue pictures were spectacular, as well as all of the wedding party photos, everyone was happy with their pictures. She followed my schedule seamlessly including obtaining venue shots, getting ready photos, wedding party photos, first-look session, wedding, reception, and more. She helped to guide me through the day and calm my nerves. Everyone was impressed with her talent and attitude. I cannot recommend her enough, and would love to hire her again for other family events!
